    I've never seen the point of anything more complicated than addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. I excelled in algebra and sucked at everything after that except statistics. Really, what's the point of it? I'm never going to use it, and the only thing you can do with a math degree is teach it or write down numbers in a cubicle all day long while contemplating suicide.

    Oh yeah, and I can figure out prices, sales tax, and tips much faster than my NT friends. They probably get more pleasure out of it though... or something.
    No offense.

    Nope, most people likely won't use anything more complicated than the basic functions; but that doesn't mean there arn't any who don't use it and that also doesn't mean it doesn't serve a purpose. Thankfully there are people who do use it because it makes our bridges safer, keeps the power on, and and keeps the communication satelites up so you can watch tv and fart around on the net. But no, you don't need to know these things and I'm sure you're glad to know the people who do enjoy it have it covered.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    While I don't especially enjoy it, I'm very good at it.

    I like it and I'm rather good at it, although I'm not that good at mental math. I'm fine with a calculator or paper and a pencil, but I can't work with big numbers in my head only. I'm currently a sophomore in high school taking Precalculus BC (the most advanced math class they offer to sophomores at my school with the exception of kids who entered the school more advanced). Although I've not gotten to true Calculus yet (we've done a little with it, apparently, although my teacher doesn't always say when something is part of calculus), we just started learning about vectors, which are really fun. ^.^ I'm doing very well in the class.

    Are there any other NTs that are not good at math?

    According to the poll, no. (unless you count the so-so category) My brother, an NT, isn't good at complex math, but that is more from lack of interest than lack of ability. So unless that was the cause, you're alone.
